  • we make our business cards by hand using scrap cardboard from our jar boxes
  • our packing peanuts are made from cornstarch, are completely biodegradable and melt in water (watch here!)
  • we get our packing peanuts from local businesses who receive them with shipments so they are also reused
  • our packing paper is 100% recycled or is being re-used from our supply shipments
  • all of our packaging including our boxes is 100% recyclable, and our product boxes like reed diffuser and pottery vessel boxes are made from 100% recycled material
  • the bags we use for local delivery orders are made from recycled paper that would otherwise enter the waste system, and are handmade by Halifax-based Greenii Inc.
  • our thank you and candle care cards are printed on hemp and are made with 100% renewable energy
